My reflection:
When I pray, which I do many times a day, I pray for a lot of things. I ask for health and happiness for my friends and for their children. This is okay to do, to ask God to help them have a sense of peace and for them to feel the love of God. I pray for our leaders to act in the common good, or at least the common slightly better. I pray that aid and comfort be rushed to people after catastrophes, natural and man-made. It is also okay to ask that my cat have an easy death. Some of my friends kids are broken and the kids parents are living in that, and other friends marriages are broken, and every family I love has serious problems involving someone’s house or finances. But we can be big in prayer, and trust that God won’t mind if we pray about the cat.” Anne Lamott
